Follow the Gingerbread Express to the Toys for Tots train!

In 2023, NEARI Children's Fund Gingerbread Express partnered with the U.S. Marine Reserve Toys for Tots Program to continue our decades of supporting families in need during the holiday season. As part of our transition to joining up with community organizations, Gingerbread Express and Toys for Tots seemed a perfect pair!

Several NEARI locals organize their own gift-giving programs for the students within their home district.

Ask your local president or building representative if there is one in your school or district.
